East-West NBA All-Star Game to be played on Dec. 18

The NBA All-Star Game will end with a bang as Yannis Atetokounmpo and LeBron James square off.

The 2024 NBA All-Star Game will take place at 10 a.m. on Feb. 18 at Gainesville Fieldhouse in Indiana, pitting the West, led by LeBron James, against the East, led by Yanis Atetokounmpo.

The West will start a stellar lineup of LeBron James, Luka Doncic, Kevin Durant, Shai Gilgeous Alexander, and Nikola Jokic.

The bench includes Devin Booker, Steph Curry, Anthony Davis, Anthony Edwards, Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, Karl-Anthony Towns, and head coach Chris Finch.

The Eastern team featured players who specialize on both ends of the floor, including Yanis Atetokounmpo, Bam Adebayo (replacing Joel Embiid), Tyreese Halliburton, Damian Lillard, and Jayson Tatum.

The bench was rounded out by Paolo Banquero, Scottie Barnes, Jaylen Brown, Jalen Brunson, Tyreese Maxie, Donovan Mitchell, Julius Randle, Trae Young, and Doc Rivers.

In the head-to-head matchups between the two teams, the East has the edge. The Eastern All-Stars hold an eight-game advantage, 37-29, and although it’s not an East-West matchup, Team Yannis defeated Team LeBron 184-175 in last year’s meeting.

The last East-West matchup was in 2017, when the West defeated the East 192-182, which is the second-most points scored by a single team in history, behind 2016 (196).

The all-time leading scorer is LeBron James. LeBron has scored 172 points in 20 All-Star appearances. He’s on his way to making history.

The most goals in a single game is scored by Anthony Davis. Anthony scored 26 in 2017, and he holds the record for scoring 10 points in a quarter.

The most assists in a career is held by Chris Paul (128), while the most assists in a game is held by Magic Johnson (22). The most assists in a quarter is held by John Stockton (9).

Walt Chamberlain (197) holds the all-time record for most rebounds, Bob Pettit (27) for most rebounds in a game, and Kobe Bryant (10) and Dikembe Mutombo (19) for most offensive and defensive rebounds in a game, respectively.

The winning team receives $100,000 per player (expanded in 2018) for the game. The losing team will receive just $25,000. That’s the equivalent of $130 million to $33 million in Korean won.

The NBA will take a break for the All-Star break after the All-Star Game and will resume on March 23rd. Cleveland-Orlando, Toronto-Brooklyn, Philadelphia-New York, and Indiana-Detroit will be the first three games to start at 9 a.m. on Feb. 23.
